Time lapse video of Rim Fire

This video includes time lapse views from Yosemite National Park of the Rim Fire, which has burned 201,894 acres. If you’re at work, turn down the volume on your speakers —  the music at the beginning is especially loud and annoying.

The video was compiled by Yosemite National Park. They describe it like this:

The first part of this video is from the Crane Flat Helibase. The fire is currently burning in wilderness and is not immediately threatening visitors or employees. The second half of the video is from Glacier Point, showing Yosemite Valley, and how little the smoke from the fire has impacted the Valley.

One thought on “Time lapse video of Rim Fire”

  1. There is no web site like this web site! Great video. The news uses the size of metro areas to describe the Rim Fire area burned i.e. Kansas City, Sacramento which means little to me. As of yesterday hand line constructed about 66 miles, dozer line 162 miles 32% contained. By the time the rain/snows come about five weeks away (hopefully) the line around the Rim should be the distance from Sacramento to Mexico, does that seem possible?
